Travel Photobook Project FAQs

Is the Travel Project a good fit for me? I am new to digital scrapbooking/have been on a break from scrapbooking for a while.


  • A guided project is the perfect way to get inspired and ‘dip your toes back into the water.’
  • A step-by-step approach with Hand-held Guidance will help you navigate challenges with ease and instill confidence as you achieve success through each step.
  • The use of templates will also provide a basic layout foundation for your pages so that you can give your attention and focus to Mastering the Essential Techniques to create a cohesive collection of pages that tell meaningful stories.

My summer is too busy. How will I be able to keep up with the project?

  • The workshop will run for 6 weeks with a BONUS session a few weeks after that. At the end of this experience, you will have the Confidence to continue your project with the Travel Project community, or if you have completed your project by then, you will likely be inspired to start a new one.
  • Right at the outset of this experience, you will make a Fail-proof Plan that suits your own photos, preferences, and schedule, and I will guide you every step of the way in this process through a simple worksheet process. A series of questions will help you tailor the project to Suit your Priorities/Goals and determine a time frame that is both feasible and comfortable.
  • The whole point of this project is to make the project Fit in with Your Life so you can continue making memories.

How is this class different from the annual December Project?

Aside from the project being customized for different project approaches there will be MORE written content, cheat sheets to refer back to, as well as worksheets to guide you through each decision in the planning and creating process.

  • The workshop is longer giving your MORE time to complete your project, and support/encouragement to get you to the finish line.
  • There will be MORE time on storytelling, and what to include, with prompts, and creative techniques for having words and adding more meaning to your documentation. I also want to devote MORE focus to the different ways you can enhance and personalize your project with memorabilia and alternative imagery sources, MORE useful Photoshop/Elements techniques to elevate your layouts, plus a blueprint for creating your Photo Book covers.
  • And there is always so much MORE that is divulged and revealed throughout this photo book making journey.

My goal is to help you to create the most Meaningful photo book keepsake yet and arm you with the skills you need to make MORE projects after class.

You can see a full outline of what to expect here.

What if I can’t attend the LIVE sessions? Will the classes be recorded?

The LIVE sessions are energetic and inspiring, proving a sense of community. They also provide the opportunity to connect with me and get your questions answered in real time enabling me to tailor the information to exactly what YOU want to learn.

If you can’t make a session though, I have got you covered.

I work in Photoshop Elements. Will I be able to follow along with the techniques?

I will be working mostly in Photoshop as this seems to be the preferred platform, however, the 2 programs are Very Similar and so I will always accommodate my Photoshop Element friends

  • When I demonstrate in Photoshop, I make a point to Verbally Cue any differing commands in Photoshop Elements.
  • In cases where the technique is different or nonexistent, I will provide Additional Demonstrations in Elements offering viable workarounds to yield the same or similar results.

My goal is always to be Inclusive in sharing across both platforms to that you can make the magic happen in the program you prefer to use.

I am interested in learning how to create a photobook but am not much of a traveler.

While I will be creating 2 travel-themed projects using the same template album, if you have a folder of photos you want to put in Sophisticated photo book format, then this project is definitely for you!

  • The steps and approaches are completely customizable to Any Theme you choose (and I will help you with that too!)
  • The templates are Completely Editable to remove all the ‘postage’ brushwork and we already have someone registered for class planning to complete a baby book!
  • The interactive format enables me to be intimately involved with your project so that I can provide suggestions and help you Solve Problems in pursuing the stories you are most passionate about sharing.

Heck! Even if you don’t have photos, but plan to travel in the future, this class will set you up for success in providing SO MUCH inspiration for what photos to take and the sorts of Experiences you can document when you are on vacation.

  • There are also LOTS of ideas for incorporating the notion of travel if you prefer to stay at home too!

I have tried to create projects before and have been unsuccessful. How will this time be different?

If you follow the steps and adhere to the plan – There is NO failing.

  • I have been creating photo books using this format, refining and improving over the past 21 Years, to bring you the Tried and Tested methods that work.
  • I have led hundreds of memory keepers to success and can do the same for YOU, if you are able to trust the process, commit to the steps and walk out a plan then we will establish together.
  • I can save you a LOT of time and frustration if you are willing to take this leap of faith and follow my lead.

You can do this.

Is it possible to change the page size as I like to work in A4 size (approx. 8 1/2 X 11 inches)?

The templates in the Travel Template Album, included with the Travel Project, are created in 12 X 12 inches format.

  • They can be Modified to suit your preferred photobook Size and Theme.
  • The modification of templates will be included in this class and you will be able to use these techniques to Adapt the templates.

Creative Team Member, Diane Weber, regularly resizes 12 X 12 templates to her 8 X 10 preferred format.

See the following posts she has written for the Blog:
